This is one of my favorite patterns. You know I love collecting fat quarters. Not only can you make one of these adorable baskets using 2 fat quarters, but then the basket is the perfect size for holding more fat quarters.
They are also the perfect size for patterns, unfinished projects, and pom poms!
So let’s look at the FQ Sized Fold Up Baskets that I saw on Instagram…
Hopefully some cute kiddo will be inspired to put her (or his) toys away in this cute basket sewn by dituttocuore.cucito.
Raingirl1963 made all these matching polka dot baskets – I love them!
And look who took my idea of filling the basket with fat quarters??? It’s juneeb_designs! 🙂
